Recently I found the great geeklist made by Brian Morris and found out that no similar list was for recent games. Especially when the top 10 list has changed a lot.
All credit goes to Brian for his first list.

The most rated game of this list. Three editions and a lot of awards credit it as one of the most succesful games ever.

With two expansions on shelves and two more coming the C&C systems has proved to be a solid game. You may like it or not (as I do) but can't deny there is a very popular game even for the non wargamers.

A game from Ted Raicer, the WWI guru. A marvelous game that spreaded the CDG system created with We the People.
Highly playable and most enjoyable Paths of Glory stands as one of the best wargames ever.

Think about card narrative ASL-lite: that's Combat Commander.
A tactical wargame wargame with cards engine that works flawlessly. One expansion to the date and one battlepack with one more incoming. And a fork of the game featuring the Pacific Theatre of Operations.
Want a easy tactical game with huge replayability? Check this out.

Maybe the highest increment on the list.
Not a game that I care much for anyway but with thousands of fans.

More tematic than wargame this is one of the games your hard-euro-fans will be willing to play.
Six players struggle for control of Europe in one of the most assimetrical games I've ever seen in game mechanics: some playes play a classic point-to-point wargame while others play diplomacy-with-dice.
I can understand why it's so loved and played but... not my piece of cake.

If you are looking for a ETO strategic wargame playable in one or two sessions maybe this is your game. Fast, easy and very funny, Europe Engulfed is one of the most fun strategic games I've ever played.

Haven't played this one but I can't hear a single complaint about it. Sadly OOP for a long time.

Recently publised by GMT this one has gotten into the masses as a fun beer-and-pretzel wargame for begginers.

The other rising on the list. And I can see why as it's one of the best CDG I've ever played and a great wargame.
